Christmas Day - Part Two

The second part of my Christmas day went by in such a flurry that I hardly remembered to take any pictures. I love getting swept up in the moment and I don't want to be stuck behind the lens for the whole day, but I really wish I had captured a few more moments with my Nikon. Not the least because I only got two measly photos that kind of show my Christmas afternoon outfit!

I wore my halter neck floral dress. I op-shopped this beauty in Queensland a few years ago, it's vintage Katies. I often wear a crinoline underneath it to give the skirt some more shape, but I didn't bother on Christmas day. I honestly think this is one of my top 5 favourite dresses. I LOVE IT! It's cotton, it's colourful, it's floral and it has a collar. It ticks all of my boxes! 

Worn with my trusty black belt (which I took off later in the day after my 3rd helping of pavlova) and my lovely Christmas tree brooch, I was feeling decidedly festive all afternoon.

I finally popped my magnum of Mumm champagne that I won on Melbourne Cup day. I had been saving it for a special occasion and Christmas seemed fitting. My cousins and I were all very excited about it, so of course we needed photos with the giant bottle, it's only right! Sadly even a giant bottle like this split between several thirsty relatives doesn't last that long, but it sure was delicious!

  1. It seems that you have a great Christmas this year. Your dress is really pretty and colourful. It is good to have your family and friends around on Christmas which doubles the joy.
